Rivals have fallen but are not yet defeated as Red Bull Wololo III, the third iteration will begin on January 2nd, presenting new challenges, offering even bigger prizes and introducing a brand-new story that will create an overarching narrative to give this epic event an even greater twist.

Played in two parts, the Open Qualifiers will take place over two weekends, and the eight qualifier winners invited to the Finals will face the top eight pros from Red Bull Wololo II and the world’s finest Age of Empires professional players Mr_Yo, TheViper, Hera, Liereyy, TaToH, TheMax, Nicov and Capoch.

Red Bull Wololo III is a unique take on the Empire Wars game mode where two players will face off in one-on-one competition in Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition. Each game starts in the Feudal Age meaning the first stages of a traditional match have been scrapped, with the more exciting action brought to the forefront as players battle across 12 new and existing maps. As part of the epic conclusion to this unique tournament series Red Bull Wololo III will introduce a new story and cement the overarching narrative and twist to the competition. In each event players have been fighting over a castle which has a library containing knowledge required for world domination. Red Bull Wololo I and II had players compete for control of a castle and library in a Western civilization. Red Bull Wololo III will represent Asian Civilization. The Grand Final will see the winners of each tournament compete in a battle of the wits with the top players rising to the final ultimate challenge to compete for the strongest civilization.

The event will be streamed globally and hosted by prominent Age of Empires 2 casters, including T90Official, Nili_Aoe and Dave_Aoe, for the English stream.
